ESA and PIP success was created by Mrs Dottie
Despite getting myself into a terrible state, just before Christmas I got the brown envelope from ESA and I am sill in the support group.

I had the assessment for PIP before Christmas I rang for a copy of the assessors report, and the young girl read it out to me over the phone so I wouldn't worry over Christmas, (although I did a bit)

Yesterday I plucked up the courage to ring and ask for a decision and was told a letter was on its way and I have been awarded Enhanced for both which is more than was getting.

I would like to add, all my dealings with the DWP, and the assessors have all been positive.

I was in a right state and panic and did try to end it all because of the stress. I wish now I hadn't worried, but it's not good to be complacent.

From now on I am going to copy all report as and when they come in, so for the next time I am prepared,

When the next review forms come in I am ready. Being ill is like a job!!

Thank you all for your support.

I'm really pleased for you, managing two assessments at the same time is no mean feat. Well done.

Up until I got the review forms my son didn't know I was on ESA and PIP.!!

When he forced the issue as to what was wrong wirh me and why I had lost weight,, he said to my amazement, "Mum, we're a team, I'll take the morning off work and take you."

He did,and the assessor was very complimentary about him, as he helped me into the room, then left me, and when I was finished and helped me into the car.

The assessor said, "You are lucky to have a son like that" Then she wished me well.

He then had to drive from Reading, Berkshire, drop me off then drive to Central London.

I couldn't have managed without the support here, and my son.
